Ingredients

  1. 5 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks
  2. 1/3 cup honey
  3. 1 large egg
  4. 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  5. 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  6. 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
  7. 1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
  8. 1 tablespoon packed dark brown sugar
  9. 1/3 cup finely chopped pecans

Directions
